It seems ages ago that we last met for coffee and advice for the white tee lovelorn – so much has happened…
After many fits and starts; the bad boy, the one that got away, the polar opposite, perfect-on-paper and even a metrosexual or two, I finally settled down with the one. But it only took one tumble in the dryer to realize I’d made a terrible mistake – my organic white tee shrank and that was that. After admitting my part in things – I only hand wash and air dry during the courtship and in time, even a perfect white tee gets thrown into the dryer – I turned my thoughts to other, nobler pursuits, like shoes. Time was a blur, until one day…
My Secret Under Age Affair
Nobody has to know I thought to myself as I glanced furtively over my shoulder to make sure that not a soul saw me entering the pink hued walls. I’m not sure what possessed me to try this establishment geared to 18 – 24 year olds, but there I was, exiting the mall with a bright pink and white striped bag of shame.
It had been a long while since I had shopped a two-for-one sale and I was feeling giddy from my sheer audacity. I was half-expecting to be asked to drive it back to the mall after dinner. I didn’t have a lot of expectations. As long as we had fun for awhile, I was happy to part as just friends.
Next thing I knew, it was the end of summer and we were still having fun. My tee was talking about hanging around for Fall…
Happy Anniversary Baby
Hard to believe, but it’s officially been over a year and my white tee is still in good shape, ready for another season. It makes me think of the last line of one of my forever favorite movies: I don’t know how long we have together, who does?
Tell me, have you found the perfect white tee this summer?
